The launch of the new Nexus 7 is “not far”, according to a recent CNET report that quote Ricky Park, the man keeping an eye on TV, Tablet, Monitor, and Notebook displays at market researchers IHS.

The IHS analyst has provided some more interesting information about the new device, regarding who will be making the tablet. Quanta is said to be the actual manufacturer of the device, with displays supplied by Japan Display and AUO (the latter has been previously mentioned in relation to the tablet). The two display makers are set to start shipping displays for the Nexus 7 in June-July.

The information, provided is accurate, is in line with a recent Digi Times report that said that the new Nexus 7 would be arriving sometime in July (its predecessor was also launched in July), and would be priced at $229 for the 16 GB version, as Google does not plan to compete with other low-priced tablets on the market with the new device.

The report also mentions that the new device is expected to have a display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, as previously rumored, with a pixel density of 323 PPI.

Meanwhile, what appears to be the next Nexus 7 has made an appearance in FCC’s database, meaning that it’s release is upon us.

    Can’t wait..I would pay $300 for 32gb, but not over

    Great news.
    I would certainly pay the price for a stock Android small tablet with that high ppi.
    I really wonder wich SoC they’ll put in this device. I hop it’ll feature at least a Snapdragon 600 : just enough to manage the resolution.

    I shall be buying this one hopefully they go with a snapdragon processor this time around.

    I’ll buy Memo for $150. Don’t need a pure Google device to read books & watch movies. No SD for a tablet is still to much of a deal breaker for me.

    So I did a little color work on the picture found in the bluetooth filing (can be seen on Android Police). This revealed what I believe to be the edge of screen/beginning of the bezel. I’ve also added the original nexus 7 with equalized screen size for comparison.

      I did a little rework on it. I think it’s more accurate

    Looks more like the Asus MemoPad HD due to be released in August to me. http://www.techradar.com/us/reviews/pc-mac/tablets/asus-memo-pad-hd-7-review-1156442/review

    IF no HDMI, no party…

    For some indie developers this can be a pain, having to work with much higher resolutions, as a starting programmer I’ve had problems with big resolutions already, I dunno, it might be different..
